the environment code to restrict the sale or distribution on city property of drinking water in plastic bottles of 21 ounces or less, set city policy to increase the availability of drinking water in public areas, and bar the use of city funds to purchase bottled water, and making environmental findings. ~ water. >> and, supervisor chiu is the author of item number 1. supervisor chiu. >> colleagues, thank you. thank you, colleagues. i very much appreciate your consideration of our legislation to hopefully [speaker not understood] plastic water bottles on city property. in recent months as we've all seen the extreme water conditions and drought in our country, in our world, the need to combat global warming cannot be more urgent. as our city has led the fight for the environment, we need to be a leader to our addiction in plastic bottled water. our world was not addicted to plastic bottled water. only in the 1990s did the now $60 billion plastic bottled water experience growth based on marketing campaigns. but before that, [speaker not understood], everyone around the world has managed to stay h
community has already been here for me and i'm a product of my environment and i think it's my purpose to give back and actually do good as i can and pay off what's been given to me. >> so that's talking about partnerships with schools and as we doing the videos in the future so the skies the limit of what we can do with this program moving forward. lastly i have one minor amendment to the legislation which is on page three, lines 21 and 22 and basically it's saying that we would sell -- we would actually distribute bikes valued at no more than $500 resale value so we limit the actual -- the more expensive bikes will not be sold but $500 resale value means they're high quality bikes that will get out on the streets so the bike quality will range from some fixer uppers and bikes used for training or even competition so it will be a huge benefit to our communities and i want to thank jeremy pollack for working on the legislation and the community groups working on this and the bike coalitions and others as well so i have an amendment of the whole to add and is there comments or question
. the environment is huge. it is stronger than willpower. surrounding yourself with artists, being in a culture where artists are driving, and where a huge amount of them is a healthy environment. >> you are making it safer. push, push. that is better. when i start thinking, i see it actually -- sometimes, i do not see it, but when i do, it is usually from the inside out. it is like watching something being spawned. you go in, and you begin to work, excavate, play with the dancers, and then things began to emerge. you may have a plan that this is what i want to create. here are the ideas i want to play with, but then, you go into the room, and there maybe some fertile ideas that are becoming manifest that are more interesting than the idea you had initially set out to plan. so there has to be this openness for spontaneity. also, a sense that regardless of the deadline, that you have tons of time so the you can keep your creativity alive and not cut it off and just go into old habits. it is a lot like listening. really listening to watch what is going to emerge. i like this thing where you put y
of the environment they are in charge of working with city departments about the requirements of this ordinance to make sure that this is doable. >> good afternoon, supervisors cohen, chiu, [speaker not understood]. .public utilities commission. this legislation [speaker not understood] distribution of bottled water on city property is in [speaker not understood] and encouraging greater consumption of bottled water. -- of tap water, sorry. the drinking water provided by the sfpuc is among the purest, the cheapest to deliver and the best tasting water in the world. this legislation build upon the tap ordinance sponsored previously by supervisor chiu, mar, and [speaker not understood] joint tap program, golden tap initiative and drink tap in school. so, these programs, sfpuc in cooperation with other city departments and agencies has begun installing bottle filling stations and public spaces in schools throughout the city. san francisco is among the first cities in the united states to feature outdoor reusable bottle refilling stations. our stations can be found in golden gate park, crocker amazo
and the environment. through our eight year old think outside the bottle campaign we've collaborated with over 140 cities, universities and many national parks to promote tap over bottled water. and san francisco will continue to play a lead role in this movement bypassing president chiu's ordinance. 2007, as supervisor mentioned, san francisco set a precedent for citieses across the u.s. by cutting spending on bottled water. we saved tax payers nearly $500,000 a year and underscored the importance of our public water system. supervisor chiu's ordinance build on that legacy by codifying this commitment into law and increasing access to public water on city property. it is an important step toward ensuring our community has access to choose clean and safe public water. and by reinvesting in and promoting public water over bottled water, san francisco will set an important example for other cities and people across the country. the bottled water industry has had misleading marketing [speaker not understood]. public water is much more regulated than bottled water and is the best way to ensure access
an additional grievance to talk about on social media. theoon as he lost information environment, he began to bleed supporters. when that happened, use on acceleration of the opposition. >> the media's first focused on the terrible and tragic deaths of roughly 78 people in the square but the real story was the loss of political support by virtue of being connected to the internet. >> the me talk about the whole new prize you are offering. explain that. the whole book is about how the internet can solve global problems. how will be a factor in the do come forward to this million dollar prize. i am literally putting my money where my mouth is. >> this is your money. >> this is a personal donation. google is doing things in this area and many are, as well. there are a series of problems -- empowerment of individuals, anti-censorship, illicit trafficking in illicit networks. technologies can be used to make those worse or better. i personally want to fund the people who are trying to make the problems better for citizens. there are plenty of heroes, we want to find them all. look at africa, fo
is an attempt to deal with this country's global foot print to create new strategic environment where the u.s. is supposedly more likely to be dealing in surgical operations and not heavy ground invasions. since the former vice president chose to compare food stamps and the defense budget, let's go ahead and take a look at what's actually happening on that front, too. the recently enacted farm bill cut the food stamp program by $8 billion which means about 850,000 households will lose $90 in monthly benefits. we've reported on that. this year, after 47 million people saw their food stamp benefits reduced because of budget cuts, that's the context, and yet everyone's talking about the military cuts because secretary hagel's proposed pentagon budget makes for an easy headline. like this. "pentagon plans to shrink army to pre world war ii level." okay. here's what some of those cuts actually look like. this is the context behind these headlines. on the left there, see the military's current level. in the middle, the proposed level. on the right, 1940 levels. here are total numbers. so while it
environment is nothing to complain about. >> and what about the personal and commercial banking business, one of the biggest segments of what you guys do. what kind of demand trends are you seeing? >> well, again, there's clearly a slow down on the consumer side, but we're coming off, you know, double digit growth rates, and we're now moving into midsingle digit growth rates. part half is intended. our government has taken an approach to try to slow down consumer debt levels and it's having an impact which i say is a good thing. when you look at loan demand on the commercial side, it remains very strong. as i say, investment demand, deposit demand has been very good. so when you look at the overall platform, it grew at 7% this year -- or this past quarter over quarter, and so it's a slightly slower environment, but as i say not all that bad. >> i mean, we talk about the good quarter you just completed, but you've had a good year at rbc, but don't you feel like the easy money, to use that term, is done now? you guys are going to have to work a little harder to keep that growth rate going, don'
is saying in an environment where some of the folks are honest, they want to make up revenue, you have to find it. we are cutting defense spending. we were talking about infrastructure, potholes, state funding. >> you have to make sacrifices. >> in the previous segment. the people who are serious want to pick up the amendment. if there's any room to maneuver or wiggle, i don't think the way they've approached the tax code gives me a lot of real faith. capital gains is an important area. by the way, to abby's point, you want to know a big idea, hold up or down votes on the floor. the speaker can put each one of these out. what i think happens here is similar to what happens on immigration. there's some piecemeal conversations but you can't actually get a vote on what i think are the most important parts. the capital gains thing, i'll end here, it's a problem because today's wealthy americans make more money through stock dividends than were before in history. >> right. >> our tax code has not caught up with that. you were alluding to that. if we don't deal with that, and i think deal wi
that came along after the department of the environment i know we're working on the scheduling of that i asked for information back on items that we're going to discuss in in addition to that i asked for a report related to some projects out in the southeast sector and i'm eager to hear back on any outstanding items commissioners. hearing none - i'll go ahead and call for any public comment? >> you're having any public comment on item 23. >> yeah. other commission business. i'm sure you may have committed before i came into the room ems on monday there's a joint puc hearing about clean power sfusd and i'll encourage you to attend and i'll be supportive. i know this commission and mr. particular some of the commissioners have received some hash comments from advocates but i know that really we all want the same goal to get a large escape of new energy be it further resolved built rapidly in san francisco. and even though the san francisco public utilities commission staff are working telephone number on this we released on rfp last friday to punish finish the planning for the local inst
, and which prohibited commonsense uses of cheap and safe fuel that could actually help the environment. and department of transportation regulations that, without increasing safety, vastly increased record eping for ready-mix concrete drivers, unnecessarily limited their hours and suppressed their wages. title 2 of the alert act helps to protect people like bob sells and his workers from regulations that ask job creators to achieve the unyou a cheeveble. do not -- the unachievable, do not help to control targets, suppress hours and wages for no good reasons and inundate americans with unnecessary paperwork. title 3 of the alert act offers long-needed help to small business people like carl harris, the vice president and general manager of carl harris company in wichita, kansas. mr. harris is a small homebuilder. every day he has to fight and overcome the fact that government regulations now account for 25% of the final price of a new single-family home. mr. harris participants in small business review panels, existing law uses to try to lower the cost of regulations for small businesse
the boundary. in the political environment we are not likely to return to levels of spending favored by the most ardent defense proponents and organizations like aei on the hill or frankly in the pentagon. now the budget plan announced monday would provide $115 billion more over the next five years then sequester level funding. if it is a realistic puzzle that reflect strategic as well as the resources the department might reasonably expect to receive albeit with strong leadership and cooperation in the congress. if enacted it will help remedy some of the damage article is by sequestration albeit with continued training and maintenance shortfalls in the near term and potential cuts in the future. if the $26 billion provided by the administration's proposed opportunity growth and security fund is also approved for fy2015 the military's near-term readiness picture improves significantly. the budget plan and associated proposals divide a sustainable path towards shaping the force able to protect the nation and fulfill the president's defense strategy. albeit with some additional risk. a
position to capitalize and stay upon the improving housing environment in the u.s. >> as you pointed out closing the sales gap, if you had two stocks to buy you'd buy both of them? >> i think by the way i position it, both companies are in the right position to benefit from housi housing. home depot is better positioned. >> gross margin 44.6%, is that a number in line with what you were the examining in. >> that's a good number just like with home depot, a lot of disruption with the weather but in both cases the gross margins held up well despite what could have been a negative makeshift in margin products. >> the at the end of the day you look at the weather situation, this is a company that probably helped out by the weather because they were able to respond quickly? >> probably. the way i think about it, it was probably some weather benefit, a lot of snow removal type products but the real key is going to be as temperatures warm, as the spring finally comes there will be a lot of pent of demand and repair spending at lowe's and home depot and that will be positive for the first quarte
the internet as we travel around in the mobile environment. it is critical. nothing works without the internet. they are still transitioning us from voice services or sms on plans. >> on the internet, what is happening with companies like facebook and whatsapp is that people are specializing. whatsapp took what people are doing and specializing to only doing messaging. nothing goes badly. carriers specialize in delivering ip quickly for voice and video services. they start doing fewer things, but doing them better. that is the trend. >> if i were a european carrier, i would say something is going badly when voxer gets all of my customers voice calls and texting and whatsapp -- >> even the carriers would agree with that. >> we are providing more services than before. we provide reliable message delivery, voice and video services, photo and video sending. what you are getting is the data plan. it is a $100 million company. they want the good parts. they want the good parts about the bad parts. that is not a reasonable way to analyze the trade-off. >> what do you think of mark zuckerberg's idea o

. this is what the environment secretary said, and i quote, people get very emotional about this. people should just accept the climate has been changing for century. he refuses to be briefed on climate change. the energy minister when asked about climate change said this -- you're not going to draw me on that. i haven't had time to get into the climate change debate. [laughter] he is the energy minister, mr. speaker. will he clarify? is a habit of climate change deniers in this government? >> this is a new approach to prime minister's questions. you come to the house of commons and praise the prime minister for his commitment to climate change. [shouting] i like the new style but i thought -- i think this is much more refreshing. this government has a solid track record of cutting carbon, negotiating internationally, to of investing in nuclear, the biggest renewable energy program that we've seen in our countries history. for the first time in a long, we are on track to meet up renewable target. perhaps he would like to get up again and congratulate me for this excellent record on the environm
on top of it a light sensor, suddenly you are responding to the environment. what we do is make the kits and we see this consistently, people buy the kits and then come back and buy another kit, then they come back and buy individual bits. >> what's the repeat customer rating? >> right now between 15% and 20%. it's something that we continue to try to grow. obviously a lot of the first two years of the business have been about building the core customer base and the core product line. >> when i think of lego, one of the interesting things about it, they run their manufacturing operations and have amazing quality control. you can take them from this year and they still work with legos 50 years ago. do you worry about because you're open source someone else could take your designs and manufacture them more cheaply? >> we have a very balanced kind of approach to open source where we trademark our name and still hold patents for the connector and the system in general, so ultimately if you want to make something you want to call little bit compatible, it would have to come after being vetted
need to change the environment that we live in. so that means better policies, access and availability to healthier food for all americans, so in underserved areas as well as privileged areas. and many efforts are under way to make that happen. >> is there any way, you mentioned the difference between what's happening in underserved areas as well as privileged areas. and you also mention the change in the women, infants and children nutrition program. how much of that can you break out. >> i know this is a small incident but how much do you know in these kinds of programs is it having an effect? >> well, we mow that children who are eligible for assistance like wic serve underprivileged chrn and those changes are very important for them. but if we pull apart the recent data we're talking about now and the decline in the obesity rates it starts to unravel when you look at the disparities. soç we know that white children have lower rates than black children and hispanic children. and the disparities are quite striking. and that tells us more effort has to be put into reaching underserv

that with the help of the sustainability office and city partners and the sfpuc and environment we will be learning to explore ways to conserve more water, not only because it is scarce, but also because the it is right thing to do and i would like to personally thank the director for all of his work in helping to embed this in the curriculum. >> also i would like to send out a shout out to the civil rights academy who will be hosting the performance for students by the music group ten. ten began a program to provide tools through music and arts to help the youth encourage their potential and later today we will have the information about the african american student honor roll and i will not steal their thunder and emily is here and i believe that virginia marshal will share the information about that event, i also would like to send out a shout out to west portal elementary and the students 200 students will be celebrating the year of the horse by marching in the annual chinese parade in san francisco and the word has it that the superintendent will be making an appearance and what you may or may
them feel that's their environment, "we help you, we believe in it." the project is paper and glue. the way people involve themselves in it is so much more. it's like community. it's people opening the windows, moving the roof. it gets deeper than that. you look at it. it's about the whole experience. more than the photo. the photo is amazing when you look at the hill covered. when you lead the process, it's life-changing. that is what took be to it. the people need to see the process, and for that they have to go through it. they really have to take the risk to get to know the people around them. life is not only on twitter and instagram. it's if you knock on the neighbour and ask something crazy, you might say yes. if you don't try, you think he's a loser and never know. >> do you know, what did the women take from that project? >> first you see it when you walk in the streets, the women have the dignity. eyes and look. they've been through the conflict and hold the family together. you have to be hungry. they carry so much intensity and strength and i did all the interview with

environment, and i would hope that everyone understand that it is all about order. and if we don't have order, we cannot provide programs. we're constantly looking down institutions. since the hearing in 2012, we have restricted housing population reduction by 25 perce percent. we have gone from 13.5 percent to 6.5 percent. so reductions are occurring. we are only interested in placing people in restrictive housing when there is justification. we have 20,000 gang members in our system. they are watching this hearing. they are watching our testimony very, very closely for the reason being if they see we will lower standards and not hold the individuals accountable, it puts the staff and inmates at risk. and this is why i mentioned in my oral statement, we are looking at staff being injured and harmed but our staff is putting their lives on the line to protect the american public. and we have inmates within the population who are being harmed by these individuals who have no respect, i mean no respect for other's when it comes to their safety. we cannot afford, at any time, to say that for thos

environment today, even a small business has to spend $20,000 to $30,000 just complying with the 2800 regulations we layered on them federally let alone the state and local. you know, erin, i invest in small businesses every week. what's what i do. you should have these people talk to you. or even better still, let the president talk to somebody running a 17-person business in massachusetts or 30 employees in california. and hear what they say. they would not agree with him. and i think that is the core and the essence of america that we're not listening to. we need to listen to these people. they should tell us what to do. what they want right now is less government. >> thank you very much. i remember, by the way, the president saying he was going to go back and cut a whole lot of regulations. there was a big push for that. when you say 2800 on average, i'm going to assume you know your stats on that. that's horrific. that's probably something you could agree with the president on, too. still to come, a controversial bill some say is anti-gay in front of arizona's governor tonight. w
this plan by hager does not accurately reflect the security environment. roy blunt, it has the potential to harm america's readiness. we're not likely to see the knock-down, drag-out fight. remember the sequester was supposed to be the stick that would force republicans and some democrats to negotiate a grand bargain. but as we saw, many republicans looked over the edge of the cliff and said, you know what, sequester not so bad. in fact, some conservatives support the sequester, for imposing cuts that congress wouldn't have had the stomach to put in place otherwise, and for republicans, some conservatives who are putting fiscal responsibility near the top of their priority list, this may be a question of picking your poison. now, according to south carolina governor nikki haley, president obama delivered that message pretty bluntly when he spoke to republican governors at the chamber of commerce -- she was at the chamber of commerce, but this is what he said, according to her, when they met at the white house. >> the tone completely changed when we started talking about the national guar
the environment and clean water standards is not antigrowth. in fact, it's projobs. when i recently toured the family-run trucking company in my district, they were not against truck safety standards. they do the right thing by their workers and they abide by safe driving rules. and they want regulations to ensure that others do the same. what they are against are new truck safety standards that hinder growth without actually making trucking any safer. smarter regulations should protect good businesses from bad actors. i'll give you another example. denny hudson, he runs sea coast bank, a small community bank in florida. like many small financial institutions, they weathered the financial crisis because they were not involved in the risky financial behavior. they expected mortgages to be repaid on time and they wanted the small businesses they supported to succeed. after the financial crisis of 2008, nearly took down the global economy, most people agreed that government regulators needed to better protect our financial system. but if new regulations keep community banks like sea coast fro
it or not we want to knit. it comes to power and does so even for the overall environment thereby leading a protest note to result in a democratically elected government being pushed aside so the dinner as long as saying the united states has the government wants. how do you think that government may turn out looking at the current crop of opposition leaders who are now and for all intensive purposes in power there do you think that that could end up being a final government well it's really difficult since when does the situations are so turbulent an ounce of course that the united states is not interested in having a fascist government in place so all we do have these white nationalists take extreme elements alone. some of those in the new korean government united states. it is the one thousand people of color what is holy war is that they will be good to be displaced and that will get more moderate figures that can be more or less controlled. now we've heard promises of financial aid coming from europe do you think europe and also the us would be able to contribute the amount of money
environment that is going to affect brazil and chile. as a geopolitical matter, the united states and it's relationships with south america are at risk. the oil problem is a big one. if venezuela should really go essentially belly up, that is going to--that could raise oil prices for a while to $5 to $10 a barrel. >> first of all, brazil one of the countries we've talked about for several years now as being on an economic growth terror, that's not the case. it's growth has slowed and it will grow a little less or about the same as the united states in 2014. it will start to have an impact on the world. there is a real domino affect if latin america becomes a problem. what is the effect to the rest of us? >> it's probably pretty contained. i think argentina, the reason why we're concerned about brazil is we think argentina is really going to go down. in its economy, and in its politics. and argentina buys a lot from brazil and chile, so both of those countries are going to suffer in their economy. brazil has other problems. you put it together, and you got a chunk of latin america in trou
this would cause harm to the state's reputation and into the business environment. >> reporter: it's already threatened ben bethel's clarendon hotel, despite his sign saying we serve everyone. he said gay customers inquiring about refunds and cancellations. >> that would result in about -- i'd say about 12,000 now, to $14,000 in lost revenue to the hotel. and that itself results in almost $2,000 in local and state sales tax revenues lost. >> reporter: but with the tide turning, even republicans who supported and voted for the bill, like state senator steve pierce -- you didn't think it was targeting the lgbt community? >> not at all, no. >> reporter: they're now urging brewer to veto it. >> we made a mistake, and now we have to fix it. >> reporter: if the governor doesn't sign or veto the bill by the end of the week it becomes law automatically. still, this morning an aide to the governor said this bill was never part of her agenda, another hint that a veto is likely. brian? >> mike taibbi starting us off from phoenix tonight. mike, thanks. >>> now to a new fight that's erupted in public tod
and planning and the sf mta so it's absolutely a collaborative environment to look at what is happening on our streets and what can we do to move forward in terms of plent so i think we have made strides? this effort. >> who is in charge? >> the mta is in charge for the most part. we are tasked with the individual projects and collaboration with them. some require collaboration but for the most part we will do the planning work and the implementation and finding the funding securing the funding through our budget or of the grants to actually make the improvements. >> i appreciate that and when i asked this question several years ago none of the departments stepped up and said we're responsible for this and unless there is a department that has the responsibility for being in charge of driving this it's hard for us as policy makers to find out who is accountable to us to get this done so i appreciate your answer. >> absolutely. >> thank you. >> thanks. supervisor tang. okay. i just have -- can you tell me where the mta is on approving the -- or hearing the vision zero plan at their commiss
